Territorial identities and religion in Czechia and Central Europe
Reeves, Daniel Vinson ; Havlíček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Kostelecký, Tomáš (referee) ; Majo, Juraj (referee)
Territorial identities are a mosaic of many different cultural elements, from which religion is just one subset. This dissertation explores elements of religion as they are expressed within territorial identities at varying scale levels in Czechia and several neighboring countries. The use of a religiously themed postage stamp or a Christian toponym, the inclusion of a religious site in a hand drawn map of one's hometown or one's position regarding the return of disputed properties to the churches they were taken from years ago, each of these can be an expression of territorial identity. Whether actively practiced or passively acknowledged, religion is bound up in our sense of place. The four separate studies that make up the body of this dissertation present religion's case as an integral ingredient within the territorial identities of Central Europe. In terms of spatial differences, Slovakia and Poland are more likely, as compared to Czechia, to recognize and include elements of religion in their territorial identities. This is true at both national - postage stamps - and local levels - toponyms and cognitive maps. Each of the methods used to explore the presence of religion in expressions of territorial identity - postage stamps, toponyms and cognitive maps - proved effective. The comparative...
Society over the Sázava
Slováček, Jakub ; Havlíček, Tomáš (referee) ; Nový, Vítězslav (advisor)
The subject of the diploma thesis is based on the specific intention of the town Žďár nad Sázavou for the reconstruction of an original kindergarten building into a multifunctional building of a community center. The construction program counts on five different programs: the Community Center, the Day Center for Children and Youth (low-threshold facility working especially with children from socially disadvantaged families), the Club V 9 (Mental Health Support Center), the Social Services Directorate, and finally, a nursery (child group, up to 3 years of age). The proposed operational solution of the project perceives the continuity of development while respecting not only the relations of the different types of functions but also the situation on the land, respectively in the surrounding area. The addition of new volumes strengthens the position of the central superimposed mass, from which individual cells containing individual functions are exerted into the adjacent garden. The relationship between the horizontal pavilions in the garden and the elevated central mass is emphasized by its further elevation and the placement of the most specific part of the social hall into this "crown" of the object. An integral part of the reconstruction is the involvement of the community center, as a public building, into the public space. The land is thus partially accessible to several public areas, but with respect to the specifics of the different groups of users, the essential part of the land is left as closed gardens of individual services.
The geographies of religion from a feminist perspective
Klingorová, Kamila ; Havlíček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Daněk, Petr (referee) ; Rochovská, Alena (referee)
This dissertation is based on the postsecularisation thesis which highlights the increasing role of religion nowadays. In the postmodern society, religion is understood not only as an objective truth, but also as the individual experience of a person. In relation to societal changes, a new paradigm has appeared - the new geographies of religion - which incorporates the individuality of a person into the discussion about religion in space. The study of religion as an individual experience could be significantly enhanced by feminist approaches which enable the inclusion of personal experiences. Therefore, the thesis contributes to the current direction of the geographies of religion connecting these with feminist approaches. The contribution of feminist approaches is assessed from the theoretical and empirical point of view. Feminist approaches develop themes of hierarchy, everydayness, emotionality, and embodiment, and thus contribute to the research on religion in a postsecular context. The empirical goal of the thesis is to consider the creation of sacred place and how religion frames the everyday experience of women. The thesis seeks to enrich Czech cultural geography with religious experience as another element forming space. The methodological framework uses the potential of a combination of...
